Submit here the detailed project plan draft as a single *.pdf document.
Submitting the plan in time is needed so that the course staff can give you feedback before the presentation of your project plans that will be on September 22nd.
Your plan should contain the following:
- Background and motivation: a general overview of what has been done in the field of research before and what open question your study aims to address (max. 1 page).
- Experimental design: a description of the stimuli you are planning to use, the presentation sequence, timing, experimental procedure and all other relevant information on the design.
- Hypothesis and analysis
approach: the kind of analysis you plan to perform, and what
kind of experimental effects you expect from the data.
- List of References
Suggest three topics for a research project that your group will perform. For each of these, the measures are expected to be performed with both MEG and fMRI.
As guideline, submissions may include a brief outline of approximately 1-2 paragraphs of text for each research question that your team wants to investigate.
Ideally, this should include:
- The project goal: what would you like to study -- e.g., "visual processing of familiar and unfamiliar emotional faces" (1-2 sentences).
- A birds-eye overview of what has been done in this field before: what is already known -- e.g. brain regions involved -- and what remains unknown (2-5 sentences).
- A general idea of how do you plan to study it -- e.g. we will compare evoked responses to rapidly presented happy vs. angry vs. neutral faces of people familiar and unfamiliar to the subject (1-3 sentences).
Please submit one single pdf file per group. One submission is required for each group and any member can upload the document.
Remember to submit your proposal before Friday the 11th of September at midnight.
